21 million DS’s sold!
Nintendo has reached an amazing milestone today! Nintendo is reporting that 21 million, count ’em, 21 MILLION DS’s sold in less than 20 months! That’s an average of a DS being sold every 2 seconds since it’s launch in November 2004.
I’m personally not surprised with the success of the DS. It just goes to show that Nintendo’s new strategy of broadening the market is paying off. The Big N also posted its predictions for the Wii over the next fiscal year. Wii is expected to sell through 6 million before the end of March 2007. I think that is about right. They’ll probably only produce around that many because they’ll all sell out. Can’t wait to get my hands on one!
